I'm asking around, has anyone had random resetting and with the screen going dark
as the game and win2k just crashes completely its been going on for about eight months
after quite a few crashes the filesystem always comes up corrupt on my windows

I'm running a

AMD Athlon 1533mhz
Nvidia GeForce 5200 FX (The big problem graphics card with WoW but I've tried another graphics
and my pc a lower end ati one that worked but the crashing and resetting
continued, Oh! I've updated the graphics card drivers)
Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 LS (I'm so sorry I bought this card creative does not
offer updates to the drivers that I'm aware of)
NC100 ADMtek network card (another problem piece of hardware with WoW
but I'm using the drivers they recommend
and right now I'm not even using it I'm on dialup)
1x256mb 1x128mb PC2100 (I've run memtest86 on these modules for six hours
and it passed just fine and I've tried just the 256mb
module by itself)
Sygate Personal Firewall (I've tried playing without the firewall on and it still crashes)

on Win2k Pro

Also I'm having a different problem on WinXp Pro
when I log into the server all graphics for player characters and non player characters
is not displayed
I have not checked the game enough on Xp to if the reset bug is still present on WinXp

I'm a little worried about testing for the problem as I said the crashes cause filesystem corruption
after a few of them
I don't even have the game installed right now because I have data on my computer
that needs to be backed up first

I'm at the end of WoW rope here I was wondering if anyone on the forums knows the
cause of this problem as it effects alot of users and Bliz just pretty much ignores it
or completely blames it on memory problems

Also I noticed on HL2 that on the video configuration screen
it says my Directx is only supported on a hardware level up to
version 8 and at software level is supported up to 9
(as I have directx9c installed)
does this mean that nvidia still does not have hardware interfaces
for directx9 for my graphics card model?
and if so would this cause a problem?
is the directx9 intefaces emulated back to directx8 interfaces?
how much of the actually processing is my main cpu doing
for this software supported directx9?

oh yeah merry christmas :thumbsup:

A shot in the dark, but do you have a Nforce motherbord?

I don't think so, I'm not really sure though

I have a intergrated S3 ProSavage DDR that has been disabled
and a intergrated Realtek AC97 that has also been disabled
and a disabled Realtek RTL8100 network device
my chipset is a VIA KM266

Your asking for info about my motherboard chipset right?
or would that be info about my intergrated graphics card?

Oh and WoW is the only program I experience these lockups with
